Whenever the Philippine weather is unbearably hot, you know what we love to do to stay cool? Use a face mask! Soothing face masks contain ingredients that not only calm down redness, irritation, and blemishes but also lower the skin's temperature.
The new face mask that we (and we're sure you, too) can't wait to try is the SNAILWHITE Icy Mask. The Thai brand's latest skincare release is a moisturizer and overnight face mask in one. It contains one of our favorite hydrating skincare ingredients—snail secretion filtrate. The Icy Mask has a lightweight, snowy texture to instantly invigorate the skin.
SNAILWHITE's Icy Mask gently whisks away dead skin cells while you sleep. When you wake up, your complexion looks even, plump, and firm—just like Erich Gonzales', the brand's PH ambassador. Plus, it helps protect your skin by preventing pollutants and environmental aggressors from building up in your pores and causing acne breakouts. It is formulated with ~*Snail Potion*~ and French silene corolata flower to brighten post-acne marks and dark spots. These ingredients also aim to hydrate and repair your skin.
So how do you use it? It's easy! At night, cleanse your skin with your regular facial wash, pat it dry, and evenly apply a layer of the Icy Mask on your face. Leave it on while you sleep and don't worry about it: The Icy Mask won't create a mess on your pillowcases and bedsheets because it's easily absorbed by the skin. In the morning, just wash off any traces of the mask and proceed with your regular morning skincare regimen.
Tip: For an extra cold and invigorating sensation, store the Icy Mask in your refrigerator for a few hours before you plan to use it.
The best part about the SNAILWHITE Icy Mask is it comes in travel-friendly packaging! The sleeping mask is housed in a small, compact packet that can fit in any kikay kit or bag. And because it can double up as your moisturizer and mask, it lets you save space and time!
Now BRB, we're going to buy a dozen of the Icy Masks.
The SNAILWHITE Icy Mask costs P70 per packet and P395 for six packets. They're currently sold at BeautyMNL, but will be available at Watsons, Zalora, Lazada, and Shopee starting June 24, 2019.
